Introduction: Hey I'm Derek! I have had the privilege of being a wedding DJ for about 6 years now. I officially launched ONYX in 2020 as a way for customers to experience a “one stop shop” for their wedding/event needs. We offer DJ, Photography, Videography, Photo booth, Lighting, Hair and Makeup. I began my DJing job in Austin, TX with one of the TOP Wedding service companies in the U.S. and my mentor was voted #2 DJ in Austin! As a Nashville singer/musician, I love bringing fun and creativity to the dance floor. The wedding experience is something that is to be cherished and remembered forever. The idea of making even the slightest positive difference in the way the special night is remembered is what drives me to take my job very seriously and have lots of enthusiasm. Whether it be creating a unique playlist to your taste, getting your people on the dance floor, or just checking in with the wedding coordinator, I will always make sure the couple is taken care of throughout the night. My highest priority is to create a great environment and memories that will last a lifetime!

Recently we produced a local 5k run/walk in Nashville. I booked ONYX Entertainment to provide the music for the event. Our DJ was early to the gig, he was on the ball, played awesome music and even brought backup equipment which impressed me. They asked me to pay them thru another app called Honeybook (I believe) it felt a little sketchy and I was worried I could be getting scammed. They assured me this is how they bill their clients, thru Honeybook and not Thumbtack. I thought I needed to pay thru Thumbtack to protect myself. If this happens to you with ONYX, don’t worry. They are totally legit and I paid them thru the link he sent and everything worked out just as planned. I would recommend hiring ONYX.

Derek and his DJ Daniel were top notch. They were prompt and professional. The music was on point and Daniel rolled with all of our last minute requests. We added the ceremony last minute and I am so glad we did. Everything was perfect and I was told our music was amazing by several guests. 10/10.
